Annual Appeal

A Message from Gigi

Dear Friends,

This has been a special year for the Seaford Historical Society!

Everyone knows about the exciting renovation work at the Governor Ross Mansion. From the garden to the interior décor, the transformation has been wondrous to see!

But that’s not the only thing happening at the Seaford Historical Society.

The first annual Pig Roast was a roaring success. It’s a nice complement to our annual Gala and is an example of our efforts to provide more social opportunities for our members and community.

The Seaford Museum had two very successful exhibits – the Christmas train display and the exclusive Eastern Shore League exhibit. Both brought in visitors from near and far. We have more exhibits planned in 2025 as we continue our goal of being the best small museum in the state!

And there is behind-the-scenes activity happening every day as we continue to Preserve, Protect, and Present Seaford’s history.

It is true that much of what we’ve accomplished was supported by grants and income from Ross Station; but we still YOU to help us continue our mission. Donations from members and friends help cover the costs of utilities, maintenance, and programs at Ross Mansion and the Seaford Museum. You can help us by contributing to our Annual Appeal. Just send a check using the MAIL IN FORM, or by using the form at right or below.

 We are honored to be entrusted with the care of our community’s history and culture and look forward to continuing that service for the years and decades to come.
